The Poor Clare Sisters in the Galway monastery

have produced a beautiful book of prayers, Scriptures and reflections.

Calm the Soul was written to share with all the joy of knowing the Lord

and having daily communion with Him in the intimacy of prayer.


In particular the Sisters hope that the book will help

those who are stuggling because of the present harsh economic situation.

They offer suggestions for prayer for comfort in times of stress,

for calm in our fears, for trust in God when our hope dims.


Already the book has received much publicity.

There is a hunger in people’s hearts

for the strength and consolation

that comes from the touch of God.

They seek authentic guides to help them

on the path to deeper serenity.


May our good Sisters’ book

bless the lives of many.
